Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

I was excited to receive this as a gift but that excitement was short lived. About 1-2 months into normal usage (I place my work laptop, some documents and pens in it and walk to work), I noticed very fine scratches all over the face and the back of the bag. Then I noticed that the leather was fading in certain areas and corners. I contacted customer support and they asked me to ship it to their facility. After about 4 weeks of waiting, I finally heard back and was surprised to see that they wanted to charge me $50+ to repaint the bag. I called them and explained that I've only had the bag for 2 months and this has to be a mistake and that the leather shouldn't fade. They said that they'll do me a "courteousy" and paint it for free. I agreed and got it back. The paint job was horrible. You could visibly see the shoddy paint job in the areas that needed it and they got paint on all of the metal of the monogram plate and never responded to any of my emails. I'd call them but the wait was usually 15 minutes. I've had much cheaper bags that started to fade after 3-5 years of heavy use which included air travel, etc and none had started scratching as easily as this one did. Tumi, you've lost a customer as I will NEVER purchase another bag from your company again. For this price tag, I expect a premium product with even better service and frankly, you failed miserably.

Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

I purchased this at the MN airport terminal, and have been using the bag daily for 6 months now. I'm hard on my bags and luggage as I travel frequently and commute to work daily. The bag looks sharp, and has excellent capacity, which was very important to me. I hold a 15.5 inch laptop in one compartment, a leather binder, notepads, charger, occasional book, and sometimes a second Utrabook in the second compartment without an issue.

I normally use the leather strap, and have never had an issue of it coming loose or separating from the bag as another reviewer mentioned. When the bag is full, and kind of heavy, the handles can be uncomfortable to carry for a long period of time as they are kind of wide. However, I imagine it improved durability. The bag looks professional, has excellent capacity, is holding up well to the abuse of travel, and I absolutely love it.

Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

This is a really great bag! The leather is beautiful and the quality is very high. It looks very classy and the black color I ordered mine in is still a bit discreet which I like. It feels modern but with a timeless design. I easy carry my laptop, iPad, folders, notebooks etc. I even carried two laptops for a while without any issues. I will keep and use this bag for a long time.

The downside is the shoulder strap's padding, or rather the lack of it. There is padding but it's not very thick (which makes it look good) but with a full bag you feel it on your shoulder. But the new design of it makes it very reliable and I like that it's a leather strap, not fabric.

Since I don't live close to any Tumi store I ordered mine online and to be able to send it back if I was not happy with it I ordered it without monogram. I decided right away to keep it so I contacted Customer service and asked if I could order a monogramed patch to replace to one on my bag and two days later I had the monogramed patch sent to me without any extra cost! Really good service from Tumi!

      Really love this briefcase.... very stylish. The only thing I wasn't happy about is that it wasn't monogramed as I ordered online. So I'll have to take it to a store to get it done.

        Would not recommend this briefcase

        Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

        I have had nothing but issues with the strap locking mechanism from the day I got this. Every time I pick this briefcase the straps come out of the side locks. The case either ends up on the floor or around my feet and I have tripped over it numerous times. I have stopped by many Tumi stores and the feeling is "that's how it is made and probably can not repair". Very disappointed in this case.

          Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

          I needed a new briefcase for work. I am pretty brutal with my briefcases so needed something that is built well and can hold up over time. Tumi makes a quality product so I visited a local store. This bag looks great. Very professional. Multiple zippered pockets with smaller pockets inside to hold business cards, pens, etc... I just traveled with it for business and ditched my laptop bag and used this instead. I was able to put my 15 inch MacBook Pro along with the charger and some other accessories in and had plenty of extra room when I looked on the website before I purchased it there were comments about the shoulder strap coming loose. I panicked and reconsidered my purchase until I spoke with a Tumi representative on the phone who assured e that they had redesigned the shoulder strap connector. Indeed they have. It hasn't come off once and appears to be locked in securely. I absolutely love this bag and highly recommend it. The only issue is the price - a bit high. But you get what you pay for and I plan to have this bag for many many years.

          Horrible Shoulder Strap, Great Bag

            • Shoulder Strap Design

            Comments about Ansonia Zip Top Leather Brief:

            I work in consulting, and is a very professional bag to bring to meetings and use this daily. Unfortunately the design of the shoulder strap is horrible. When you pick up the shoulder strap it falls out of the holder and you have a bag on the floor and strap in your hand. The strap will not stay on your shoulder, and should just be a better design. Definitely look at other bags, or at least the bags that do not use this shoulder strap design.

            I've had this for a year now and love everything about it. It has enough room for an MacBook, legal bad and lots of other storage compartments without any added bulk. I am about to drop it off at the Tumi store for a polishing.

            Poor shoulder strap design. No friction pad on strap. Slides off shoulder. Strap frequently pulls out of clips on bag. One of the shoulder clips broke within first three months.
